I have just received my new table and chairs. Here's a photo to give you an idea.
What accessories, bits and bobs (links are welcome) would you recommend to tie everything together and make it look really special?

I like plants and fire. Lots of both
I would have pot plants with different textured plants, as well as grow as many plants around in the garden beds as possible. I'd layer it in such a way that there is year round visual interest with flowers, foliage and maybe fruit as well.
A fire pit probably isn't the safest thing around kids, so maybe lots of lanterns with citronella scented tea lights. They do double duty that way - deter mozzies and look pretty.
On the table, maybe a pot with some succulents as a centre piece when not in use. Or maybe a hurricane lantern filled with interesting shells/pebbles/other item that you've collected.
If you have anywhere to hang one, what about an old fashioned chandelier with real candles? They add atmosphere that normal lights don't do.
I'm on the iPad so too lazy to link, but check out houzz.com for heaps of ideas.
